Many In Stock
Uniquely interdisciplinary in orientation, the book joins experts in ecology, agriculture, medicine and development studies to produce this large-scale study. The authors argue that a number of qualitatively different regional types exist in the world, each comprising its own homeostasis. The book presents a fresh perspective on environmental area studies and demonstrates that the process of globalization leads to the destruction of the coexistence of human beings and their environments.
